Why rent instead of buying?

Buy or rent pictureThe deciding factors are invariably market confidence/uncertainty or speed. The alternative is usually to build but can you justify the capital spend? How long is the contract, what volumes do you expect, how quickly do you need to be operational? 


What if I want to own the asset in the future?

We understand the concerns that once on hire, equipment stays long beyond the originally intended period which is why we now offer purchase options at the end of the hire term at a price agreed with you within the original hire agreement.

Does external storage break the 'chill chain'!

We do not supply 'containers in a carpark'. The majority of the units we supply either link directly to your factory through an aperture in a wall or are supplied with an adjustable elevation platform from a loading dock.

We can supply standalone multi-compartmental complexes, which include their own changing rooms, etc. where a standalone facility is needed such as for a ‘free-from’ product.

Will hiring a portable unit compromise my HACCP system?

Absolutely not. We have had our units inspected by an independent HACCP inspector to ensure conformity.

Will the equipment be new or old?Dawsonrentlas bodyshop

The choice is yours. We manufacture new equipment for 52 weeks a year to cope with our customer demand. On average almost 50% of units delivered were brand new units. Those delivered which were not new all received a bodywork refurbishment and the refrigeration soak tested.

Can I view the unit prior to delivery?

Yes, if not a new build, customers are encouraged to view equipment being prepared at Unit JB, Beech Avenue, Naas Enterprise Park, or request photographs, or for larger projects requiring new build we can arrange to visit the bodybuilder and view production.

What if I need something different, or of a different size, at a later date but still within the contract?

This is one of the benefits of rental. We can add modules, remove modules, up- or down-size to suit your changing business requirements.

Aren't rental companies notorious for high damage charges post-hire?

For transparency, our Customer Support Manual identifies what is acceptable and not acceptable in return. On return, all damage is photographed before repair to avoid potential disputes. If damage occurs during hire we recommend that we are advised and repair carried out immediately. If not repaired promptly, any damage can affect the performance of the unit, increase your running costs and dilapidate resulting in a higher future repair cost. Our Bodyshop Engineer will recommend measures to avoid a repeat which is in both of our interests as damage may affect the longevity of the equipment and/or affect the ultimate resale price of the unit.
